Indigo Dyeing Workshop with Trudi Pollard
Be inspired by the natural setting of the Mundaring Sculpture Park and transform materials from the earth into your own unique textile fabric in this 2 hour workshop with textile artist Trudi Pollard. Trudi will share her passion for natural dyes, explaining new and innovative techniques developed from ancient cultures whilst guiding you to create a patterned fabric piece using Indigo and natural mordents. Trudi will prepare a natural indigo fermenting vat using fruit and earth minerals in an eco-friendly way then show you how to transform a homespun cotton fat quarter into a special textile using Shibori techniques. After the session you will receive a free copy of Trudi’s Natural Dyeing booklet that includes special recipes to create your own natural dyes.
Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting messy.
